When you think about the efforts Midway has made to turn the Mortal Kombat franchise into something other than that of a pure fighter, try not to lump Shaolin Monks in with the publisher's previous attempts. It would be simply unfair to compare it to...

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Review

 

Mortal Kombat is a part of my childhood. The hours in the arcades playing MK2 shaped much of who I am today. Yes it's cheesy, yes it's cliché, but hanging ...

So the good is great - especially for a MK fan boy like me. The bad is well, tolerable. I think the co-op and versus modes steal the show. The length is made up for by the unlockables and replay value. I think this is a must-buy if you like MK games,...

The Mortal Kombat series has come a long way. The first game introduced the word “FATALITY!” to the culture as something other than a word mentioned on the evening news. With match-ending kills like ripping an opponent's heart out or tearing off an...

Builds on the MK mythology ; Familiar MK character moves in brawling situations ; Tons of secrets ; Fun

Sometimes confusing where to go next ; Might be too easy for advanced players

Pick this one up.

There are special combos the two players can perform together, special fatalities for the co-op players and secret areas that can only be access with co-op mode. You can choose how to play, working together as a team, or competitively, going for the...

Midway drops a killer collection of mortal moves for our brawling pleasure.

Ridiculously fast and very bloody combat; gameplay is much more accessible than the fighting game; tons of Mortal history crammed in

No chance to go to co-op on the fly; graphics could be better; combat may be too simplistic for long-time fans

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Review for the XBOX

 

You have not offended the Shaolin temple.

Besides, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is still a fairly impressive beast. It might not be smart, polished or new, but it's wonderfully violent, varied and bloody. Plus, it's proof that two heads are better than one.

Saving Earth Realm once more, with feeling.

In Shaolin Monks, you can play as either Liu Kang or Kung Lao, with the possibility of unlocking other characters as the game progresses. There is a single player mode where it's just you against the hordes of demons, or you can partner up with a...

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Review - PS2

 

As well as serving up some decent action, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is a trip down memory lane for long-time fans of the series. The game's repetitiveness, however, may leave newbies wondering what all the fuss is about.

Easy to master game controls, Plenty of hidden secrets and game modes, Solid co-op play, Good trip down memory lane for MK fans, Can be repetitive, More suited for long time MK fans, Stay away if youre squeamish or have young children

Product Specifications

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks is an Action/Adventure title driven by both intense single and multi-player action. Similar to Mortal Kombat: Deception, background interactions (i.e., acid pits, living trees, spiked ceilings, etc.), multiple new fatalities, and action-based puzzles will also play an important role in the player's quest for an "outstanding" victory. Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks will feature an impressive line-up of Mortal Kombat characters, as well, that make frequent appearances as enemies, in boss battles and during several additional in-game interactions.
